Chef Andreas Orzechowski From M/Y Far From It Featured In Yachts International Magazine

In the last issue of Yachts International, Chef Andreas Orzechowski was featured in the Cellar & Galley section.  The original article, written by Andrew Parkinson, can be viewed here:  www.yachtsinternational.com/lifestyle/chef-andreas-orzechowski

M/Y Far From It is a 142′ Richmond built yacht that accommodates 10 guests in 5 staterooms.  The yacht is currently cruising New England.  She will be on display at the Antigua Charter Show from December 4 – 10.  Immediately thereafter, through May 2019, the yacht is available for charter in the Caribbean from the beautiful British Virgin Islands to “Spice Island” – Grenada.  The possible itineraries are endless.

It’s Chef Andreas Orzechowski’s world, and I’m just trying to keep up.

Struggling, in fact.

As the chef aboard the 142-foot (43.3-meter) Richmond Far From It adds finishing touches to a dessert course for 10 guests, I’m crouched on the galley sole snapping photos, trying to capture “the one.” Orzechowski floats around almost rhythmically, as if dancing to a waltz, in total control. I find myself waltzing around the galley as well, following him with all the grace of a drunken albatross.

“Actually, I started out as a trained mechanic,” Orzechowski says, hinting at his natural-born talent for technique. “In Germany, I spent several years as a professional mechanic, but I always felt it wasn’t for me. One day, a good friend of mine who was the executive chef at a restaurant in Berlin asked me to come be a chef with him. I figured, ‘Hey, I’ve got nothing to lose.’”
